Heroes Of Comedy No1 Victor Borge

Victor Borge was a Danish musical genius. He was also a comedy legend. Enjoy! Some of this may elude you, as it did me, but the best bits are as good and 'off the wall' as any Chic Murray..........

That was fantastic! I had no idea who Victor Borges was. I'd heard the name but had no idea. So thanks for that. Now I should probably go find out who Chic Murray is...

Please do La Bête. The extent of Chic Murray stuff on Youtube is limited to a guy who did a show a while back in which he impersonated him (not bad, but out of sync) and about eight minutes from a show in Aberdeen in the early eighties. Theres very little of him on film, a lot of it either got wiped or was done live.
here are some of his best gags.

Victor Borge is fantastic. Such a great, casual humour.
